This year’s Giving Tuesday has officially come to an end, and we can’t thank our generous donors enough for making it a successful day. Throughout the day, online donations rolled into our shooting team and organization endowments. When the day concluded, we had over 550 donations roll in, which totaled to an incredible $175,952! We brought more donations in on Giving Tuesday this year than Giving Tuesday 2017 and 2018 combined, that’s truly amazing. As mentioned before, Larry and Brenda Potterfield generously gave us $150,000 in matching funds for Giving Tuesday, which means we are adding a total of $325,952 to team and organization endowments. 180 youth shooting team and 6 partner organization endowments will benefit from contributions on Giving Tuesday!
Every youth shooting team and organization that received a donation on Giving Tuesday will receive a portion of that $150,000. The matching ratio came out to $0.85 on the dollar. So, if your youth shooting team received a $100 donation, we added an additional $85 for a total team endowment contribution of $185! We are so grateful to the Potterfields for allowing us to offer this incredible opportunity for youth shooting sports! Our youth shooting sports community donors are so generous, so remember to thank your donors if your team received a donation during the event. Thanks again for making our 2019 Giving Tuesday so successful.
